To help my students rise to their fullest potential, I create a safe, caring and stimulating environment that supports risk-taking where they can grow and mature emotionally and intellectually.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
